Description:
This report presents the findings of a high-level review of the implementation of the Youth Homelessness Strategy. The purpose of the review is to establish the extent to which the strategy has been successful, to identify blockages and challenges to its implementation, and to make recommendations on a new implementation framework.The review consisted of the examination of key documentation; in-depth semi-structured interviews with a selection of stakeholders and service users; a web-based survey; analysis of key data provided by the HSE on service utilisation; and a workshop with stakeholders to validate the synthesis of findings in relation to each objective of the strategy. Some significant changes occurred in the range of accommodation available to the youth homeless services during the course of writing this report and in some instances valid criticisms by stakeholders had been addressed or were being reviewed by the time this review was concluded.
